Siksa (N3)

Siksa (N3), the City of Courage, was the home of the Asp Bloodline of the Naga. It was located within the lower portions of the Shinomen Mori, near the lake beside Sunda Mizu Mura. [1] It was the best-preserved of the Naga cities in the Shinomen Mori, and the one known to the greatest number of Rokugani in the modern day. [2]

Appearance Edit

Siksa had a strong encircling wall and a street plan that allowed for defense in depth should the outside fortifications be breached. [2] After the Bloodland Wars their walls were covered in gold. [3] Within Siksa's walls was the source of the River of the Sky. [4]

History Edit

Attacked by the Darkness Edit

In 1132 the Lying Darkness's minions attacked Siksa. Resurrected Hida Yakamo and the Shasyahkar led their Naga army, crushing the enemy utterly. [5]

Awakening and Second Sleep Edit

Following the Great Sleep the city remained slightly active, due to the presence of Unicorn bushi and the few Asp still awake to protect their sleeping race. [6] Large portions of Siksa were still uninhabited, of and when the Second Sleep occurred the Asp gave over a few buildings to their Unicorn allies. [2]
